We are looking for Senior Visiting Research Fellows to join the Legal Priorities Project for a fixed period of 3–12 months and take on a research project inspired by legal longtermism or our research agenda. As a Senior Visiting Research Fellow, you will be part of a team of researchers committed to tackling some of the world’s most pressing problems. In doing so, you will help us establish "legal priorities research" as an academic field. Your research will inform policymakers and litigators working on protecting the well-being of future generations and reducing existential risks.
We welcome applications from different levels of seniority (with at least a PhD in a relevant field or with equivalent qualifications, such as a JD or an LLM with extensive research experience). This includes postdoctoral, assistant professor, associate professor, or full professor level applicants. We also welcome applicants who currently hold an academic appointment elsewhere and wish to keep it during their visit, as well as applicants from outside of academia. Finally, this Visiting Fellowship is also open to researchers who are new to longtermism and wish to learn more about its applications in law.
There is no application deadline—you can apply anytime. We will evaluate applications on a rolling basis.
